AN ORIGINAL GREAT SEAL OF ENGLAND 

Through the generosity of Mrs. Ida Portia Bowman, her brother, Dr. 
Robert A. Bayley, and her sisters, Mrs. Eller\- A. Johnson and Mrs. Charles D. 
Montague, there has been presented to the Pennsylvania Museum, as a memorial 
to George Willard Read Bayley, an original great seal of England, which was 
attached to a patent, as shown by the accompanying parchment, registered in 
the Patent Office on the 25th of June, 1860, by L. Edmonds, Clerk of the 
Patents. This patent on improvements on rails, rail supports and fastenings, 
and the nut fastenings of railroad bolts, was granted to William Edward Newton 
and assigned by him to George Willard Read Bayley, Mrs. Bowman's father, 
who was a distinguished American Civil Engineer, and whose patents they 
really were. 

With the seal are the original patent and the assignment thereof by Mr. 
Newton to Mr. Bayley. An American patent of 1868, for a nut-locking rail- 
road chair, also is "in "the collection which Mrs. Bowman has turned over to 
the Museum, with the drawings of the said improved nut. 

Mr. Bayley was born at Saratoga Springs, N. Y., on November 30, 1821. 
He was a son of George Washington Bayley, of Newbury, Vt., and of Pattie 
Lucia Read, of Rutland, Vt. Both were des"cendants of earliest EngUsh settlers 
in New England. His childhood was spent on the present site of the Grand 
Union Hotel, Saratoga Springs, N. Y. He early showed unusual aptitude for 
mathematics and entered the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Troy, N. Y., 
graduating in 1838 at the age of seventeen. His first employment was on the 
railway from Albany to Buffalo. His health failing, however, he was sent for 
a trip "around the world, returning to America and civil engineering two years 
later. He worked in New York State until he became Assistant State Engi- 
neer of Louisiana, with his office at Baton Rouge. His study here was the 
hydrography of the Mississippi River; he perfected difficult problems of hydro- 
dynamic science and became a recognized expert in the physics of the Missis- 
sippi region. He was also elected Chief Engineer of the New Orleans & 
Opelousas Railroad, which office he held for fifteen years, accomplishing many 
difficult feats of railroading.

It was during this period of his Hfe that one of his inventions for the 
improvement of rails, rail supports and fasteners, and the nut, met with 
enthusiastic acclaim in this country and in England. His inventions were 
patented under the great seal of England by William Edward Newton and

assigned to him the same year, 1860. He most likely would have made a fortune 
through at least one of these, had not the Civil War disturbed the business of 
the United States. His nut-locking chair, however, was patented in this coun- 
try in 1864. Mr. Bayley lived on a fine country estate in Brashear City, now 
Morgan City. It was destro3'ed by a Federal Arm}- during his absence in New

Orleans on government work, when he was closely associated with General 
Banks and "Ben" Butler. 

About this time he was appointed City Engineer and City Surveyor in 
New Orleans. Later he returned to his former position of Chief Engineer of

the New Orleans & Opelousas Railroad until its purchase by Charles Morgan, 
when he was appointed Chief Engineer of the New Orleans & Chattanooga 
Railroad. The difficult construction of the railroad from New Orleans to 
Mobile, Ala., was thus entrusted to his skill. It so happened that the speci- 
fications of the contract for the grading of the track across the Atchafalaya

Basin were so drawn that to carry them out must entail loss on the contractor. 
Mr. Bayley was inflexible in exacting their fulfilment, and in the course of the 
difficulties that followed he felt justified, in 1873, to resign his post rather than 
be untrue to his principles. 

He wrote the "History of Railroads in Louisiana," which was published 
in the Picayune; contributed an article on "The Mississippi" to Appleton's 
"Cyclopaedia;" another on "Levees" for Johnson's "Cyclopaedia" and for 
Barnard's "Cyclopaedia;" also one on the same subject for the American 
Society of Civil Engineers, of which he was a prominent member. He was a 
forcible writer for the New Orleans Times and the Picayune, thoroughly satu- 
rated with his subject, and his pen exercised a marked influence on the people 
of New Orleans and of Louisiana at large. An article on "Leveeing as a 
System for Reclaiming Low Lands, " in 1875, obtained a wide hearing. He stood 
boldly for the jetty system, and his work before Congress in support of an open 
river mouth had much to do with securing the passage of the Jetty Bill — Fort 
St. Philip Canal, and the jetties for deepening the channel for the use of large 
vessels at the mouth of the Mississippi. After the passage of the bill he was 
urged by Capt. James B. Eads to accept the position of Chief Resident Engineer 
of the Jetties, with his office in New Orleans, ranking next to Captain Eads, a 
place which he held at the time of his death. 

When in this country, Dom Pedro, Emperor of Brazil, with Captain Eads 
and Mr. Bayley, visited the jetties with a view to jettying the mouth of the 
Amazon. On the next day the Emperor called personally on Mr. Bayley and 
offered him the control of the work which he was planning, stating that he 
regarded him as the only civil engineer he had met who could carry out the 
undertaking. 

The Museum already possesses, thanks to the industry and interest of 
Prof. Charles E. Dana, an interesting collection of casts of the great seals of 
England, made by the late Mr. Dana from the French archives which are 
housed in the superb palace of the Princes of Rohan-Soubise, in the Marais, 
one of the most interesting and once aristocratic parts of Paris. That collec- 
tion contains 50,000 specimens. The great interest of ancient seals lies 
principally in the fact that they may be taken as fairly good representations of 
the monarch, more reliable than any other such of the time. Then, in early 
days, the seal was supposed to be endowed with magic power; without it the 
King could not govern. To counterfeit it meant to the culprit to be "hanged, 
drawn and quartered." In mediasval days, when the greatest monarchs could 
hardly sign their names, the seal was the universal way of authenticating docu- 
ments. The Magna Charta was not signed by John, it was sealed. The 
earliest signed English document is by Richard II, murdered in 1400. 

Originally the great seal of England was three inches in diameter. In 
time it increased in size, and the seal presented by Mrs. Bowman measures six 
inches. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries it became rich in design and 
expensive. Today it is rather weak and decadent, but still it has to be attached 
to all documents to which His Majesty as sovereign gives his assent. 

The Penn Charter is the ro^^al document most familiar to us in America. 
That invaluable document is in Harrisburg, but it lacks its seal, and b}^ the

way, this reminds me that the disc which the sculptor appended to the Charter 
on the statue of WilHam Penn on top of City Hall, according to the late 
Charles E. Dana, who looked up the matter, combines two serious errors. It 
resembles no seal ever used in England; and to cap the climax, it is stamped 
with the coat of arms of Queen Victoria, thus giving to this charter of 1681 a 
coat of arms absolutely unknown prior to 1837. A little knowledge of ar: lEeol- 
ogy, I have several times discovered, is most valuable in art. 

Our seal represents the Queen on her prancing horse, which is held by a 
page. The legend reads "Victoria Dei Gratia Britanniarum Regina Fidei 
Defensor." On the other side the Queen is seated on her high set throne, under 
a Gothic canopy, globe and scepter in hand; canopy between two female 
figures holding sword and book, said to be the cardinal virtues; at the foot is 
her coat of arms. These seals were cast in a silver mass 6| inches in diameter, 
and llj inches in depth; it was in two parts and weighed one hundred and 
eighty-five ounces. Mr. Dana compared these matrices to huge waffle irons, 
which they do somewhat resemble. The whole subject is most interesting. 
The Museum until now possessed but two original seals, one of Germany and 
one of the early Pennsylvania seals, and this English seal is a valuable acces- 
sion to the collection.

OLD LIMERICK LACE WEDDING VEIL 

In addition to the seal presented by the heirs of George Willard Read 
Bayley, as explained above, the fine Limerick lace wedding veil of Mrs. Bayley, 
his wife, was also presented to the Pennsylvania Museum, as a memorial to 
her by her daughter, Mrs. Ida Portia Bowman, of Philadelphia, and by Mrs. 
Bowman's daughter, Mrs. John O. Taxis, also of this city. Mrs. Bowman was 
also married in this veil by the same minister who performed the wedding 
ceremony for her parents twenty-six years before. 

Thus the two generations are represented by this memorial gift to the 
Museum. 



A REMARKABLE PIECE OF CHINESE NEEDLEWORK 

A picture of Field Marshal, the Right Honourable Viscount French, 
copied from a photograph by a needle artist of Central China, has been pre- 
sented by Mr. John H. McFadden to the Pennsylvania Museum. It is a won- 
derful work of art. It has all the appearance of a painting in sepias, and when 
the writer first saw it she wondered why the gift of such a picture was made.

BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 23 

Even after it was explained, it seemed incredible that so perfect a result could 
be obtained with needlework on silk. 

It was shipped by a Chinese merchant to the Liverpool Cotton Association 
as a gift to be sold for the benefit of the British Red Cross, and as such was 
raffled. Mr. McFadden purchased the portrait from the owner. 

The delicacy of the work, the high lights and shading, the expression of 
the eyes, everything is photographic; as a piece of needlework it is unsurpassed. 
Truly a wonderful piece. 



EXHIBITION OF OLD ENGLISH AND AMERICAN SILVER 

The Exhibition of Old English and American Silver which was held at the 
Museum during the month of May, proved a remarkable success both as an 
exhibition and as an attraction to the general public. Students of antique 
silver came from outside the city to see and study it, and local antiquaries spent 
considerable time over it. 

The fact that every piece came out of the silver chest of some well-known 
Pennsylvania family and that most of the material had belonged to some more 
or less important personage whose name is preserved in the annals of this Com- 
monwealth added not a little to the popularity of the exhibition; and its 
opening day for private view drew a large and interested company, and more 
than the usual number of men. The exhibition closed on June 3d, and through 
the care and good management of those in charge, every article was returned 
safely to its owners, with the most sincere thanks of the Museum Committee 
and of all in charge. 

Had any proof of the success of the undertaking been required, it would 
have been found in the fact that a number of persons who originally had 
declined to loan their valuable heirlooms, either owing to war conditions or to 
an unwillingness to take the trouble to ransack their silver chest or their silver 
closet, afterward expressed a liveh^ regret for not having done so. Not a few 
offered to do so after the exhibition was opened, but desirable as their generous 
offer was, it was then too late, as, of course, the catalogue was printed. 

The latter was by no means the least important part of the undertaking. 
Although put together in considerable haste, it will have a permanent value as 
a descriptive list of the important silver that may be found in this city, and 
while the war conditions and the uncertainty of what they might bring 
influenced many not to take their possessions out of bank, thus making the 
record incomplete, enough has been shown to indicate the wealth of this com- 
munity in this particular class of heirlooms. At any other time the display 
must have been astounding. As it was, it proved an unusually fine exhibition.

THE VON ROTH COLLECTION 

Through the kind interest of Miss Mary H. Tobey, the Philadelphia 
public will have the free privilege of visiting a large and most representative 
collection of the people of the Balkan states and of the Turkish dominions 
which is now being installed under the dome of the Pennsylvania Museum at 
Memorial Hall. The collection was raade some years ago by Capt. Carl M. 
von Roth. He held a government position for a number of years in Sarajevo, 
and had to travel extensi-\'ely over Bosnia and Herzegovina on inspection tours. 
He also, in the nineties, was sent by the Austrian Government, whilst those 
lands were stUl "occupied" by the Austrians, on several missions to Cyprus, 
Palestine and Syria to procure animals to improve the breed of those in Bosnia ; 
also to collect designs for atelier work in textiles and in metals, which industries 
were being revived with great success by the Government for the good of the 
nati^^es. He was a government agent, a military man being required to fill the 
position. There were then no Americans over there and only three English 
residents. He had in the course of his duties ample opportunity to obtain for 
his own use, as well as that of the government, many curious articles probably 
no longer to be found in the Caisija or Bazaars. The collection, therefore, is 
very full. It contains specimens of almost every class of objects that go to 
illustrate the mode of life of the people of Bosnia, Herzegovina, Dalmatia, 
Syria, Serbia and other Balkan provinces and Turkish possessions. The col- 
lection contains costumes, rugs, pottery and is especially rich in brass work. 
There are some good specimens of Persian work, armor and weapons — and 
altogether, taken at this time, it is especialh^ interesting and educational. 



NOTES 

April Bulletin. — Owing to the Loan Exhibition of Old English and 
American Silver, preparations for which occupied the somewhat depleted staff 
of the Museum this spring, and to the fact that an illustrated catalogue was 
published at the time of the said exhibition, the issue of the Quarterly Bulletin 
of the Museum, due April first, was omitted, it being considered that the 
illustrated catalogue of the Loan Exhibition might take its place. 



SCHOOL NOTES 

The cover of the present number of the Bulletin was designed by Hettie 
Emma Wenzel, a student of the School, and received the Mrs. J. L. Ketterlinus 
prize.

Several new prizes have been established this season. Mr. John Frederick 
Lewis, President of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, has offered 
a prize of fifty dollars for the best year's work in drawing; Mrs. C. Shillard- 
Smith a prize for the best single illustration done by a member of the graduating

class; Mrs. Henry S. Grove a prize of twenty dollars for Interior Decoration, 
but after this year the prize will be awarded for the development of Pageantry, 
which is a very important part of the work of the Costume Class; Mrs. 
William T. Carter has added a second prize to the one she had already estab- 
lished in the Costume Class. 



26 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 

As in so many cases of need, the Associate Committee of Women has come 
forward and estabHshed the first Fellowship in the School. This will become 
operative next season, and will give a student of known promise and earnest- 
ness, who would otherwise be obliged while studying here to give a good deal 
of time and strength to earning support by outside work, the freedom from this 
drain on vitality, and conserve that much more for the effort in the class. For 
years it has been hoped such a plan would be consummated, and this term it 
has been fulfilled. In many ways it is more fitting that the Associate Com- 
mittee of Women should be the donor of this first Fellowship than to have it 
come from the hand of any individual, or from any other official body. The 
records of the Institution show only a part of the important work of this Com- 
mittee, but many members of the Alumni Association can bear testimony to 
their constant benefactions, made for the furtherance of the School's work. 

The two scholarships founded by Mr. John D. Mcllhenny in memory of 
his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John Mcllhenny, were awarded this 
season as prizes for work accomplished in the School, and this also determines 
their future character. It must be borne in mind that scholarships are the 
highest recognition offered by the School. They are rewards for scholastic 
attainment for high endeavor, and in no sense merely financial assistance. 

Upon the great success of the small pageants instituted last year, an 
organization has been effected among the students studying the subject, to 
produce representations of these historic types, in a scholarly manner, which 
would make them worth while as features of School and University work. The 
interpretation of the life of ancient Egypt, Greece, and of Renaissance Italy, is 
probably the best way to impress the character of those periods upon the mind ; 
and given, as in these cases, with accurate costumes, scenery and accessories, 
music, the dance, and lighting, with the artistic consideration having as 
prominent a place as historic truth, they must afford unlimited suggestions to 
the decorator, the sculptor, the illustrator, and the student of life history. No 
printed page can so vividly portray the features of national expression as the 
pageant. The transitional grouping, and the variety of color harmonies, as 
well as sound, motion and light harmonies, stimulate the minds of the artist 
and the scholar. The School's large collection of costumes and accessories of 
the periods mentioned, as well as the resources of its scholarship are back of 
the enterprise undertaken by the students as a professional effort. 

* * * 

Mrs. Jay Cooke, 3d, has presented a large collection of materials for 
utilization in this work, and during the season various members of the Associate 
Committee of Women have given costumes and accessories. 

* * * 

The Business Bureau of the Alumni Association has received at this season's 
end many more applications than usual for art workers, which is striking in 
view of war conditions. Advertisement designers are chiefly in demand. 



BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANL\ MUSEUM 27 

Next year all special classes will be eliminated, and only regular courses 
maintained. This has been contemplated for some time, as the effort to con- 
duct so many varied subjects as heretofore, is too taxing upon the faculty. It 
is also quite possible that some of the teachers will be called to military service, 
leaving gaps in the ranks. The "fit" students volunteered early, and those not 
qualified to go to training camps have gone to farms. A canvass made as 
to the kinds of help which could be given by the pupils showed a most interest- 
ing variety of offers, and many of the girls signed for "care of children when 
mothers had other necessan,^ work," or even "domestic science." Several of 
the young men have gone to France, and the spirit of the student body was 
excellent. 

^ ^ ^ 

The fourth Summer Session of the School will begin July 9 and continue 
for four weeks. Registrations have been received from Alontana, Texas, 
Canada, and other distant points. 

The courses have been increased and now include instruction in Normal 
Art Methods, Interior Decoration, Costume Design, Drawing, and Craftwork. 
Mr. Ege will be assisted by Mrs. Mary E. Marshall, Mr. Warwick and Mr. 
Thayer. Each year more students in the regular classes are traceable to the 
Summer School advertising, and the enrolment of Art Teachers who have 
been trained in other schools.
